So much for both the Dems (for Bernie) and the Repubs (for Trump) not wanting the corporate establishment in charge. Now it's on steroids. How well do you think these guys are going to relate to the People? Scary.

A sensational comparison, something that could be said of almost any cabinet assembled. If anything, it demonstrates the gross disparity of income between most of America's citizens and the ruling less than 1%. Remember, it was none other than Bernie Sanders who while campaigning upped the ante on the percentage involved as compared to the wealth of just seven people from a single family: "Today the Walton family of Walmart own more wealth than the bottom 40 percent of America."---Bernie Sanders

So, who out there is willing to make a wager that the cabinet Hilly Clinton would have assembled would have been any different? THAT, should be the outrage expressed in the aftermath of this election, the fact that there really is little to no substantive difference between the two flavors of the duopoly. To continue to imply that there might be, is to abandon any claim to the noble title, journalist.
Enough already with the bull shit party PR.
